I tried to get out of the office early today to be home in time to finish this weeks project for TIOT at Susana's Store Blog. Well - of course I did not manage to get home until 19.30 - so what should I do? I really wanted to be able to play with this fun challenge - so just a quick sandwish and off to my craft room ;-)
This week we should make some kind of package or a small gift wrapping, box or bag.
We should aso use any supplies from Susana's store and a *NEW* Karen Lockhart image.
I need to be honest here right away - my new KL has not yet arrived - so what should I do??! I could not skip this project because of this - right? Instead I decided to use one from the previous collection - the cute little Chintz Butterfly. So it might be that you will see 2 postings from me this week on the same subject ;-)
Have you seen the DPs from the Laura Ashley Contemporary set that Susana carries? I just love them and that's why I used three sheets to make this box: one for the base, the second one for the inside of the box and the third one for the lid.
I added a choc chip ribbon (SU) around the edges of the base + around the middle of the base. Then I cut out the butterfly with my Nesties and added some Coffee Shimmerz around the edges of the circle. I coloured the little butterfly with my copics and added some stickles on the green part and Shimmerz on the white wings.
First I thought of adding something for the bath to go inside of the box, but could not find
anything that would fit. So instead I decided to give away "Apelsin Choklad Skorpor". What's that you say? Well - it's Orange Chocolate Rusk in Swedish. Wish I could send you all some to try for your coffee or tea.
Also don't forget the Lockhart Promo that Susana is having.
PS. Oops - I realized that I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the box - I will do that tomorrow and add to this posting.

She is so kind and if you have not experienced her perfect customer service - then visit her shop and get to know her more. Amazing - that's the word that I would use to summarize Susana's person.

As you all have noticed - this weeks TIOT is a Try it out Thursday instead - due to our mini-release of the wonderful creations of Elisabeth Bell and Victoria Case for SCACD.
Suzanne wanted us to create a Halloween or Fall card. Well - we don't celebrate Halloween in Sweden (well - some have started to do so - just because the shops want to sell stuff ;-) - so I decided to make a b'day card using Fall colours.
I stamped the adorable Milla using my Memento Tuxedo Black - that I think is the best when you want to colour with your Copics.
Then I went for a rather "clean" layout using my DPs from stach. I also cut two laces with my Martha Stewart punches. Added some Baubles and matching Petaloo Dazzlers.
The sentiment is from Aud Design and it's saying Happy B'day in Swedish.
Wish you all a wonderful day and I am looking fwd to read your comments. Also - don't miss the rest of the DTs creations for you to be inspired by.
